Centiva has joined the SmartWay Transport Partnership, a collaboration between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the freight industry designed to increase energy efficiency while significantly reducing greenhouse gases and air pollution.

“Air quality in our products and processes is a major objective of Centiva’s Green Way initiatives. The Green Way is Centiva’s environmental vision. We feel the SmartWay Transport Sytem helps us contribute to better air quality,” said Rhonda Ross, exec vp Public Relations and Green Initiatives for Centiva.

Centiva has been participating in the Partnership’s goal to reduce 33 to 66 million metric tons of carbon dioxide and up to 200,000 tons of nitrogen per year by 2012 by improving the environmental performance of our freight operations. Carbon dioxide is the most common greenhouse gas, and nitrogen oxide is a pollutant that contributes to smog. For more information about the SmartWay Transport Partnership visitwww.epa.gov/smartway.
